Old School.


 Believe it or not, this blazer is vintage. Vintage as in I got it in high school and vintage as in I bought it from Abercrombie way back when Abercrombie may or may not have dictated my entire wardrobe. Of course I liked to add my own bits and pieces to the brand's staples, like pairing argyle knee socks and a rugged pair of Birkenstock's (remember those!?) in order to separate myself from the sea of A&F clones, and while it has been years since stepping foot into A&F's doors, whipping this piece out for Easter Dinner made me realize how much their quality has diminished since my A&F sporting days.

The intricate detail of this blazer √† la corduroy elbow pads and wooden buttons screams classic. So much so that practically 10 years later I can still wear it as a light jacket.

(Flats, Tory Burch (seen here); Denim, Henry & Belle; Chambray, J.Crew; Jacket, Abercrombie & Fitch (old); Belt, J.Crew; Nails, Essie Spaghetti Strap)
As you can see, I decided to take my Aaden Flats for another spin around town.

Follow-up: I think I have finally broken them in!
